Default can't mount a 4G USB memory stick (fat)

Hi list,

I noticed f13-beta can't mount 4G USB memory stick (fat)
Any plan to fix it?

Thanks,
Luming

Need more information.
1) Did this work before?
2) FAT16 is limited to 2GB for the most part.. FAT32 is required for
4GB. Although it looks like it was formatted with the 64K cluster
fat16 which I have no idea who supports.
3) Is it only this stick or others? [I have a 4GB stick here that
seems to work great but it is formatted as W95 FAT32 (LBA)

I have several USB storage devices and SD cards in various formats which
all mount fine...as Smooge says, I don't think this is general issue,
something specific to your stick.

Looks like the problem is that your stick has a FAT16 filesystem, but
the FAT table overflows... Can you try running CHKDSK on Windows to see
if it's ok?
